About this event

Variable fonts are often promoted for their flexibility in adapting to different device constraints. Here, we’ll explore their potential to respond to contexts outside the browser — considering type as a performative medium over time. Drawing from the design process behind the typeface Pentameter and its specimen site, Marie Otsuka (Occupant Fonts) will share how we might extend variable technology into our environments through creative coding.

Marie Otsuka is a Brooklyn-based designer / developer working on fonts, websites, and tools. She draws typefaces at Occupant Fonts, while independently collaborating with organizations and artists on various typographic projects. Her type design education began as a graduate student at Rhode Island School of Design, where she now also teaches type / programming-related courses.
